I assigned my students to write a summary. Some of them included the word "summary" in the title (i.e. The Summary of ...). I don't think the word "summary" should be used in the title. Do you agree with me?

I don't think there's anything wrong with using the word "summary" in the title. However, it should be "A Summary," not "The Summary," since the latter implies there is only one way to summarize the material.
